How Long is a Piece of String (Originally Untitled) – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)

How Long is a Piece of String

i miss a pretty thing
how big is my affection
how long is a piece of string?
speaking slowly now, turns a knife
i hope it is going to be alright
i miss a pretty thing
it is strange in my mind
i miss something i let go
i want to cope,
i want to let go of this pain
but every day arrives with duty
and they do keep on arriving
and i know life is is much more
but sometimes it is hard to keep on smiling
i miss a pretty thing
it is difficult and i feel alone
i miss the closeness,
i miss a pretty thing
sometimes it is hard to keep on smiling
how much? how long is a piece of string
